Honor Your Doctor - New York City

This special event will honor physicians for their tremendous contributions to the food allergy community.


On Monday, Dec. 2, at the Mandarin Oriental, New York, FARE is thrilled to honor two leading experts in the field of pediatric allergy and immunology, Dr. Scott Sicherer of New York’s Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Dr. Jonathan Spergel of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Come help us celebrate the contributions these remarkable physicians have made to our community as we raise much-needed funds to support FARE’s innovations in research, education, advocacy and awareness.
